Garage Door Trends in 2018
One of the first things people will notice about your home is your garage door. How could they not? It’s a giant aspect of your home that moves and catches attention. Your garage door is the first impression people have on your home; so what if it looks a little… worn? Dented? Scratched or scraped? It could be time for an update. If you’re thinking about replacing your garage doors in 2018, you may be interested in hearing about some of the latest trends. Just like every other home improvement project, it pays to look around, see what you like, and determine if it will not only improve the look of your home, but if you were to sell your home, would it be a positive thing in the view of potential buyers. You should know, the industry has come a long way in terms of garage door styles, colors, windows, etc. Here are some of the top trends to help you start your search:
- Welcome back to the 70’s! Wood is popular again. Wood garage doors used to be very common, until they were swiftly replaced by steel garage doors. But wood garage doors are making a comeback, and they look better than ever.
- An Automatic Door? Technology rules! Like everything else, garage doors are growing more high-tech. Now you can open the garage door with your smart phone, or get a garage door system that senses when your car is approaching and opens automatically. Who wouldn’t want to be the talk of the town with an automatic garage door?
- Windows, windows, windows. Garage doors with windows gained popularity in 2017, and that trend continues into 2018. People are tired of a dimly lit, dreary garage. Today’s garage doors have more windows and bigger windows than ever before, to let in lots of natural light. This could also help cut down on electricity costs, since there’s no need to turn the lights on during the day to illuminate your garage.
- Insulated garage doors. As more and more people use their garage for more than just parking the car, they are looking to make it more comfortable year ‘round. An insulated garage door can help keep the cold and heat from drastically changing the temperature in your garage. This is perfect for those who like to use their garage as a work area. Now you can work all year ‘round and be comfortable!
